Lesson 26. Active Containers

Active document containers are the environment through which the end user controls and manipulates the appearance of data. Containers, through their menus, provide a means for the user to view data differently, change data formats, insert new data, and so on. Containers also allow the user to change the viewable size of the data by manipulating the frame and add toolbars and other "decorations" to the window frame.
